The AMICAL Digital Pedagogy Committee would like to invite all AMICAL members and a larger audience, to this online session on using podcasts in education. Podcast is a fancy word to refer to audio, or video files, typically produced in continuity, as downloadable radio shows, audio feedback, course introductions, students audio/video projects, etc.The webinar will draw from the research and experience of several AMICAL members. Anguelina Popova (American University of Central Asia) will share her research findings on the effectiveness of different types of podcasts on student engagement and learning. Kim Fox and Hoda Mostafa (American University in Cairo) will talk about good podcasts shows they regularly listen to and recommend for students and teachers alike. They will share how they use podcasts in their teaching, and how their students adopt this technology for learning.
In the course of the webinar, participants are encouraged to raise questions, concerns, or share their personal experiences using podcasts for teaching and learning.
Ultimately, participants will gain a deeper understanding of how and why using podcasts in education.
